Red White & Blue

In honor of the upcoming Memorial Day holiday, today we read books that featured red, white, and blue! Then we made this star decoration to hang on a door or in a window!

Mr. Baseball

We have some young patrons who are playing Spring sports, so today we read about baseball! Bats at the Ballgame by Brian Lies told all about a baseball game played by two teams of bats - with bats! Albert's Ballgame by Leslie Tryon tells about what happens to the town of Pleasant Valley every spring. Our last book, Dino-Baseball by Lisa Wheeler told about a game between the plant-eating Green Sox and the meat-eating Rib-Eye Reds. Who will win? Read it to find out!

We did some stitching with yarn on a paper plate to make it look like a baseball. Then we added goggly eyes and other features to make the plate look like a person. Finally, we added arms, legs, and a baseball cap to our person. Some added letters on caps or numbers on chests! Mr. Baseball!
